This is the Factoid profile:

“My name is ____. I am a fun guy. I just moved here from ___ for my job. Don’t really know so many people yet, so I’m just on this thing looking to see what else is out there. I was born in ___. I went to college at ____ and studied _____. Right now I’m working for ______ as a_______. 

For fun I like to hang out with my friends. I’m close with my family, even though I don’t get to see them as much as I’d like. I like to watch ____.  I guess anything else you want to know can be asked. Hope to hear from you soon.”

Due to the fact that many people think alike when it comes to writing an online dating profile, most of them end up looking very similar.

Avoid this

You want to show a woman that you are unique, but you do not know how to do it because you don’t read other profiles.

This is just like Charlie Brown and the teacher who would come in and she had no identity, everything she was saying being interpreted as “wah, waw, wha waw-waw wah.” That is how a woman sees it when reading your profile. You are completely indistinguishable from other profiles.  This looks exactly like a form in which you fill in the blanks.

Most people complete a factoid profile because

It is easier to describe yourself with facts, but this will not help conquer a woman.

Men tend to write their online dating profiles like that because while on dates, you tend to feel like on a job interview filled with questions such as:

“Where did you grow up?”

“What do you do for a living?”

“How many brothers and sisters do you have?”

“Are your parents still living?”

“Where did you go to college?”

“What was your major?”

“Did you join a fraternity?”

“Who did you vote for in the last election?”

Was that date fun?

Well you could say it was at most doable or that you felt pressures and that is not fun. If you want a great date you have to actually feel something, no matter if the emotional hook was because you felt listened to, understood or entertained.

If you describe yourself through facts you do not reveal yourself. That is why a factoid profile does not create a connection between you and the possible partner. She won’t feel like she knows you but she will feel that she knows things about you and that won’t want make her talk to you.

So, how do you picture yourself in your dating profile?
